Jimmy Kimmel just got some new material–the hard way–for his late night comedy show–his own car wreck. Kimmel’s BMW collided with another car on Sunset Strip in Los Angeles today (Feb. 1) after the comedian made a wrong turn.
Kimmel was uninjured in the collision, but his BMW suffered significant front-end damage, according to local news reports.
The other car involved in the collision, an Audi, was also damaged. Air bags deployed in both cars, according to gossip site TMZ.
The accident unfolded in front of the Chateau Marmont hotel in West Hollywood, a well-known watering hole for Hollywood celebrities.
Kimmel appeared to be at fault in the crash. A witness to TMZ that he made a prohibited left turn onto Sunset Strip. Oddly, a “right turn only” sign was clearly visible attached to a stop sign at the intersection.
Kimmel was spotted by paparazzi talking on his cell phone next to the driver of the other vehicle, apparently working out the insurance claim.
A fire department official and a police officer were also at the scene.
Kimmel may have been distracted by his upcoming turn as emcee of the 2018 Academy Awards.
